About Sweet Plantain

Sweet Plantain is a string quartet that specializes in genre-blurring, original compositions and arrangements, as well as contemporary works by Latin American composers. Its unique style fuses Latin, classical, jazz and improvisational forms. The group’s mission is to give voice to a contemporary, urban, and Latino sound and bridge the gap between generations and musical genres. Artfully fusing the western classical traditions in which they were trained with the hip-hop, jazz improv, and Latin rhythms on which they were raised, their original writing and live shows educate and entertain. Separately hailing from the South Bronx, New Jersey and Venezuela, together these musicians give voice to a sound that is contemporary, multicultural and very New York.
